Six Chinese state-owned energy companies are coming together to form a joint venture (JV) to trade coal and electricity, as well as to invest in an electric transmission system for better connectivity in the Shanxi and Jiangsu provinces.

China Coal Pingshuo Coal Company Limited, Datong Coal Mine Group, Datang International Power Generation Company Limited, Jinneng Group Company, Jiangsu Guoxin Investment Group Limited and Shanxi Shentou Power Corporation, together will invest a total of CYN6 billion to form the JV named Sujin Energy Holding.
